Sorry I missed the original post (or it is delayed in transmission) - and
sorry that my contribution is so slight.
I have only the memory of my first stereo playback. It was the Cook LP
"Gulls and Buoys" - a classic 'ping-pong' sort of sound effects disc. The
year was almost certainly 1955 and I would recognize the reproducer if I
saw it again. The occasion was an English class in my third or fourth year
of high school. I can 'see' that classroom in my mind's eye even now.
